We'll be meeting on December 12 around 12:30 p.m. at Sudley Manor House in Manassas, VA. There are approximately 75 residents of the assisted living home, and December 12 also happens to be their open house holiday party (which runs 1 30 to 3 30 that day) so the portraits will most likely be family portraits, with some individuals. Estimates suggest about 20 of the 75 residents will have family members present.Feel free to reply here or…See More
Everything is just getting organized - the first meeting is this Thursday - see the comment on the front page. Here is the note from Lauren:
A message from Lauren Fontaine to all members of Northern Virginia / Wash D.C. on Help Portrait!
Everyone is welcome! There will be plenty to do. See the top level comments section. Lauren has organized the first meeting, which is this Thursday (11/12) hope you can make it.
"I won't be able to make the Thursday meeting either. I plan to talk to some folks tomorrow about one possible idea and will post the information here and send it to Lauren for inclusion in the meeting discussions."
"Doug and friends,
I am Northern Virginia photographer looking to get involved. I have connections with the homeless in my area and I am looking for ways to give back to the community. Please let me know how I can help.
The plan will be to reach out to the families and individuals in Northern Virginia, & Wash DC areas through shelters and care centers. Looking for photogs, shops, MUAs, printers and suppliers to aid in the gift of photography for those in need.See More
